In 2013, singer and songwriter Todd Snider formed Hard Working Americans, a roots rock/jam band supergroup featuring musicians who'd previously worked with Widespread Panic, Col. Bruce Hampton, Ryan Adams, Chris Robinson, Great American Taxi, and others. For their first album, Hard Working Americans recorded a batch of songs about work from other artists, but Rest in Chaos is their first full-length set of original material. Mixing humor with pointed social satire, Rest in Chaos finds Snider and his group tackling both darker moods and high-spirited rock.
While Todd Snider is best known as a witty and insightful songwriter, in 2013 he gathered together a handful of friends who are also gifted musicians and let some of his favorite songwriters do the talking for a change. Hard Working Americans is a new band that features Snider on vocals and guitar, along with guitarist Neal Casal (of the Chris Robinson Brotherhood), bassist Dave Schools (from Widespread Panic), keyboardist Chad Staehly (Great American Taxi), and drummer Duane Trucks (King Lincoln).
